Flower Tour: Thyme in Bloom

Creeping thyme is a perennial, with a constant display of flowers until frost. The plant stays semi-green throughout the winter, so I'm able to clip it for the kitchen in any season.

Flower Tour: False Mallow

There are many types of false mallows. I don't know what kind this is. I purchased a plant about 10 years ago. It is not a perennial, but it seeds freely and has spread to several areas of the yard. It's not invasive, however. Pulling the plants up is easy if you don't want them. But the flowers are delicate and pretty, and popular with bees.

Tiny Sweat Bee

The sweat bee is an itty-bitty native bee. Some are quite colorful. This one was hanging around a mother wort plant.
